"More Than A Memory" as written by Lee Brice, Billy Montana and Kyle Jacobs....
People say she's only in my head
It's gonna take time but I'll forget
They say I need to get on with my life
But they don't realize

Is when your dialing six numbers just to hang up the phone.
Driving cross town just to see if she's home.
Waking a friend in the dead of night, just to hear 'em say it's gonna be alright.
When your finding things to do not to fall asleep
'Cause you know she'll be there in your dreams.
That's when she's
More than a memory

Took a match to everything she ever wrote
Watched her words go up in smoke
Tore all the pictures off the wall
But that ain't helping me at all.

'Cause when your talking out loud and nobody's there
You look like hell and you just don't care
Drinking more than you've ever drank
Sinking down lower than you've ever sank
When you find yourself falling down upon your knees,
Praying to God, begging him please
That's when she's
More than a memory

She's more
She's more

'Cause when your dialing her number just to hang up the phone
Driving cross town just to see if she's home
Waking a friend in the dead of night, just to hear 'em say it's gonna be alright
When our finding things to do not to fall asleep
'Cause you know she'll be waiting in your dreams
That's when she's
More than a memory

People say she's only in my head
Its gonna take time but I'll forget

    General CommentIt's just saying that there are some people who are more than just a memory. People come and go in your life, but there are gonna be some that are impossible to forget and let go. And no matter how much you try, you just can't get them out of your heart. I absolutely love this song

    General Commentto me, it has more of a meaning than a relationship just ending.
    my girlfriend died. and this song kills me when i hear it.
    everything about her is more than a memory to me.
    i'll never hear her voice again, she'll never be at her house again, and i'd do anything to get her back.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful. Garth does such a wonderful job singing it, making the ahce of such a situation even more clear with his amazing voice. A very powerful, and heart tugging song.

    General CommentLove this song. If you've ever been in the situation this song is so true. Sometimes no matter how hard you try you can't get some people out of your head or your heart. Sad but true.

    General CommentThis song is absolutely amazing and I think most of us can relate, and I am in no way trying to say anything against this song..But it says six numbers? isn't a phone number seven?

    General CommentThe "dialing six numbers just to hang up the phone" part is saying that he can't make himself dial that last digit. I know sometimes I used to find my ex's name on my cell phone and have a finger on the call button but I just couldn't make myself push it to call her.

    This is a great song, it describes pretty much all the feelings you get when you're in that type of situation where you still feel really strongly towards someone and no matter what you do you can't get them out of your head.
